Autobiography the biography of oneself narrated by oneself Autobiographical works. can take many forms from the intimate writings made during life that were not necessarily. intended for publication including letters diaries journals memoirs and reminiscences to a. formal book length autobiography, Formal autobiographies offer a special kind of biographical truth a life reshaped by. recollection with all of recollection s conscious and unconscious omissions and distortions The. novelist Graham Greene said that for this reason an autobiography is only a sort of life and. used the phrase as the title for his own autobiography 1971 The line between memoir and. autobiography is a fuzzy one especially in this modern literary era where writers are constantly. blurring the boundaries between genres to create a new exciting one As an autobiography. a memoir is a narrative that reveals experiences within the author s lifetime But there are obvious. and practical differences between the two similar genres. In essence an autobiography is a chronological telling of one s experience which should. include phases such as childhood adolescence adulthood etc while a memoir provides a much. more specific timeline and a much more intimate relationship to the writer s own memories. feelings and emotions Now let us have a look at an excerpt entitled The Word from famous.
